Despite an excellent start to the indoor season, Axminster bowlers have suffered mixed fortunes of late with defeats in their last three matches, writes David Harris.

First up, a visit from Chardstock resulted in a 103-28 Axminster win with wins on all rinks; Pam Hunter, Sue Bond, Les Clark, and Bob Sherborne (39-5), Morrison Brown, Nigel Bond, Jean Kesterton, and Margaret Crompton (34-11), and Andy Curtis, Margaret Brown, David Harris, and Brian Clark (30-12).

The other mixed friendly played saw the team suffer a heavy 113-58 reversal at the hands of Honiton, this despite winning two of the four rinks played! The Axminster winners were Malcolm Denslow, Morrison Brown, Nigel Bond, and George Mabon (26-22) and John Hill, Jo Barnish, Brian Parsons, and Margaret Crompton (23-15).

The men lost their first match in the County Over 60s, beaten 89-71 by Budleigh with only the home rink of Mick Hennegan, Sid Milburn, Doug Looskan, and John Gough managing a win, (25-18).

The ladies lost their home friendly against a very strong Devon Ladies Patrons team, going down 75-35 and, alas, recording no rink success.
